It looks like he says his eldest son is called William Brind, though it is hard to read from the available copy of the will. Since Robert Brind married Jane Bridgeman in 1826 (if this is the right Robert) it is quite possible they had a child before Thomas, the eldest listed in the 1841 census. Since William could have been about 14 in 1841 it's quite possible that he was away from home (perhaps working as an apprentice) at the time of the census. But it is quite difficult to find a William Brind of that sort of age and living away from his parents, in the 1841 census. However, there is a William J Brind born in about 1826 in the 1851 census.
